About

The South Yorkshire Growth Hub exists to help businesses access the best possible business support.

Growth Hubs are local public and private sector partnerships led by the South Yorkshire Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), providing a mechanism for integrating national and local business support. So that it is easier for South Yorkshire businesses to access the help and advice they need to thrive and grow with local Business Support Advisors

The Growth Hub is overseen by the Business and Recovery Growth Board, part of the South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority (SYMCA).

The South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority (SYMCA), led by Mayor of South Yorkshire Dan Jarvis, brings together the local authorities of Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield and the private sector through our Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP).

The Mayor, MCA and LEP have a shared purpose to create a stronger, greener, fairer South Yorkshire. Working together to unlock the potential of people, businesses and places and ensure they prosper.

A Strategic Economic Plan (SEP) provides the blueprint for how to transform our region. To keep people and businesses moving and help them grow, delivering a public transport network and attracting investment to create a stronger, greener, fairer South Yorkshire by 2040.

With a vision to grow an economy that works for everyone. Developing inclusive and sustainable approaches that build on our strengths in innovation and embrace the UK’s 4th Industrial Revolution, to contribute more to the country’s prosperity and enhance quality of life for all.

With powers and resources, devolved from Westminster to South Yorkshire, mean SYMCA can take decisions locally about economy, transport, skills, housing and infrastructure.

To create a vibrant, thriving South Yorkshire where people want to live and work. To attract new investment to our region. And build the conditions for inclusive economic growth which benefits everyone. To help create good jobs, by backing businesses to grow, invest and locate in South Yorkshire.

Supporting people so they have the training and skills to find work, remain in work or progress in work. To help businesses secure the skills they need to be more productive and grow.

We serve South Yorkshire every day and connect people and businesses to the places they need to be. As the body responsible for South Yorkshire’s public transport network, we manage the 102 million passenger journeys made each year in South Yorkshire. We are building a transport system which is reliable, green and affordable.
